Boston Living with Water: Final Awards Reception
Join Mayor Martin Walsh in celebrating the winners, ideas, and participants of the Boston Living with Water design competition that kicked off on October 29, 2014 at ABX. After the winners are announced, competition jurors will share insights and impressions in a lively public discussion, followed by a celebratory reception.
This spring, the Boston Society of Architects/AIA has worked with key partners to explore one of the most distinct effects of climate change in coastal cities: sea-level rise. The Boston Living with Water project includes an international competition and is jointly organized by The City of Boston, the Boston Redevelopment Authority, The Boston Harbor Association, and the Boston Society of Architects. Public programs related to the Boston Living with Water Project are produced by the BSA Foundation. Nearly 350 architects, planners, artists, engineers, landscape architects, and students worldwide submitted 49 proposals that responded to sea-level-rise issues around three local sites: Morrissey Boulevard near Columbia Point, the Fort Point neighborhood, and the Prince Building in the North End.
This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required, as space is limited.
